WAGONER — A Locust Grove man pleaded guilty Thursday to drug and weapon charges and was ordered to serve 20 years in prison.

Terry Michael Standingwater, 33, was arrested in July 2005 by Coweta police officers, who found four, fully loaded pistols, extra ammunition and some drugs. District Attorney Richard Gray said the front passenger seat of the car had been removed, “a configuration sometimes observed in vehicles used in drive-by shootings.”

Standingwater pleaded guilty to possessing controlled dangerous substances and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony.

“I am confident that the police officers’ alert actions in this incident averted a more serious crime,” Gray said. “I feel that the 20-year sentence was appropriate and justified in this case.”
